Hand in Hand Parenting
This is a “connection-centered” parenting group that’s been around
for more than twenty years. They have lots of articles on their websites regarding
parenting in a gentle, connected manner. They host free teleseminars and free study
groups as well. Some of their approach: “Parenting by Connection foundations:
- When children feel connected, they learn readily, love easily, and become caring
leaders among their peers. A healthy parent-child connection enables a child to
fully access his intelligence and ability.
- When parents feel connected with their children and with other parents, they have
greater success at solving problems at the heart of family and community life. Parenting
becomes more fun, and more rewarding.
- When children’s behavior goes “off track,”
they are asking for closeness, connection and understanding. Parents can use the
tools of Special Time, Playlistening, Setting Limits or Staylistening to rebuild
the connection with their children. The child offloads stress, reconnects, and can
then make thoughtful decisions and learn from his experience.
- When emotional stress sends parents’ behavior “off track,” they
need the support of a listener who appreciates how much they care and how hard they
try. Parents need the safety to offload feelings that interfere with their ability
to guide their children with love and sensible limits, kindly held.”
